Wrong mount and it wouldn't fit in the car

I'd offer them 45 to take it off their hands
Mind you it would certainly p*** the canon fraternity of big time if someone bought it that was going to use it on an Olympus

Most importantly - it's white, so it must be good!

Re: (off topic) Canon 1200mm on ebay

Having borrowed an 800mm f/5.6 when I was using a 600mm f/5.6 I wouldn't want one even if someone gave me one. It's to big even for a door stop.

Free Worldwide personal delivery included.......I think that may be the clincher! I'd consider moving to Australia to maximise the bang for buck
I hope our illustrious political leaders don't see it though. Otherwise they may declare war on Ebay thinking they're attempting to sell a supergun firing mechanism
